The Mad Ferret Band from Perth are known on the Scottish music scene for their hard hitting blend of traditional and contemporary folk music. Their lively, energetic performances are packed with “blisteringly fast mandolin solos”, tight vocal harmonies, driving Cajon beats and earth-moving guitar sounds.
The Duo features Chris Woods on Mandolin, Guitar and Vocals and Sandy Stirton on Guitar, Cajon and Vocals.
They are an extremely hard working band performing an average of 180 gigs a year in intimate venues, cavernous concert halls & frantic festivals, both at home and abroad.
Notable gigs include: Live performance on BBC Radio Scotland, Danny Kyle Stage at Celtic Connections, Perth Concert Hall, Northern Roots Festival, Montrose Music Festival, Mull Music Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Oran Mor, Dings Do Festival – Italy & multiple European tours.
The Mad Ferret Band have previously been invited to warm up the stage for renowned acts such as Dougie MacLean, Skerryvore and Red Hot Chilli Pipers.
